Which kernel of the two available? Which soundcard do you have? Network
card? What application did you use to test? Any error output in the
output of dmesg or in /var/log/messages?

I don't know if I understand the question. All apps will work with the
original Fedora kernel. With one big exception. You will not be able to
use the Jack server as a non-root user, and many (or most) of the cool
things you can run depend on Jack being there.
